    Hi all,
    my imac app store wants me to download Keynote, Numbers and Pages but comes up with my wife's email address. I inherited her phone years ago and logged out of everything and back into everything, and no matter how many times I log out of iTunes and the App Store and back into it with my correct details, it still comes up with the 3 apps pending download but with my wife's email already entered in, asking for her password. But I want it to know it is me. What have I done wrong?

    Delete those apps, and download them again.

    Woah, now my iMac won't finish booting. The booting progress bar takes forever to run to the right, and then just stops there for hours. Would my wife's iworks on my mac stop it booting? I didn't type in the password because I didn't want it to download Pages, Numbers and Keynote for another account. Would it be trying to download these apps anyway, and somehow hung?

    So the same thing is happening with iMovie. It says imovie is 2.66 gig. If I delete the imovie app just in trash (and not in appcleaner which would delete everything), and then redownload it, will it reconnect to all my library settings etc? I won't lose any projects?

    Or is there a way just to tell apple that this imovie app is MINE, not my wife's?

    No it won't. The data in not stored inside the application.

    In System Preferences is the iCloud account your Mac is attached to yours? Or is it still your wife's?
